So I picked up the girls from school and on our 30 min ride home this was the conversation I heard:
Mom: ( to 10 yr old) Why are you so grumby this afternoon?
10 yr old: I’m hungry. Thats why!
Mom: Didn’t you eat your lunch?
10 yr old: NO
Mom: Why not honey? I made you a nice lunch.
10 yr old: (In a grumby comanding tone) The cheese was so thick I couldn’t get my teeth through it!!
Mom: (thinking . . . cheese is soft even if it is thick. She could have removed the cheese. What a waste of money) So you didn’t eat it?
10 yr old: NO
13yr old: So why didn’t you just cut the cheese???
Hilarious giggles explode in the minivan as we trott down the interstate at a clipping 70mph
Even grumby 10 yr old had to laugh.
6yr old totally not understanding the joke: I cut the lettuce!
I love being a Mom
Well . . . It was about 11pm and we all should have been in bed
I was in the bedroom rocking the baby and I heard all kinds of excitement.
Before I could plead for a quiet entrance my little lady Kyndall came bounding through the door with a smile as large as Texas, waving her hand and proclaiming to have lost her first tooth all the while bouncing like a mexican jumping bean!!!
I felt like scolding her for waking the baby, but her excitement was contagious and made me smile and giggle a congratulations to her.
Then I did a crazy Mom thing!
I made her a tooth fairy pillow for her tooth to safely wait patiently for the tooth fairy to come. ( by now we were nearing the next day mind you!)

I just love being a Mom!
I had made these super simple dresses for the girls and they have been worth every moment I spent on them!!! The girls just love to play with these dresses! The dresses were just a simple A-line form with elastic in the neck and sleeves. My girls dress them up with aprons and hats to play fancy tea time or something a little more rugged to play prairie girl . . . Look what they’ve been up to!
Do you think they noticed that no one ever smiled in old time photos??? lol
Question: What do you do when you are touring an 8000 square foot mansion with 5 little ladies????
Answer: Act like a bunch of animals!!
We recently got a behind the scenes tour of a home my husband built. The fireplace was so huge the oldest little lady could fit inside!
I would dread being the wife that has to clean this place, but really it was pretty nice
Prince Charming and a little lady

The girls and I were driving in the country the other day when I spotted this interesting
junk art sculpture. I know they were thinking I was crazy “here goes Mom again!” as I abruptly slammed on the brakes and did a 360. “Grab the camera” I commanded with a giggle.
Pretty creative really! You know me . . . I love to be creative
